Turkey Meatloaf with Spicy Tomato Glaze – Recipe!

Print Friendly

I used to cook for private clients a few years back and deliver freshly cooked meals to their homes nightly.  Turkey Meatloaf Night was a big hit and I was always swamped with orders — probably because it’s true comfort food.  Meatloaf for me brings back childhood memories of enjoying a nice meal with my family and catching up on events in our lives.

What makes this recipe so special is that turkey meatloaf tends to be a little lighter in texture, than meatloaf made with beef or pork and the slightly spicy tomato glaze provides a little sweet heat, that adds a kick without being too overpowering.  I just love this recipe and I hope you and your family will too.

Ingredients

2 1/2 pounds ground turkey

2 teaspoons fennel seed

2 teaspoons onion powder

1/2 cup instant oatmeal

1 onion

1/2 cup ketchup

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

2 teaspoons Sriracha sauce

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1/3 cup brown sugar

olive oil

salt

pepper

 (Serves 6)

To Prepare:

1.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Dice the onion and add it to a medium saucepan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.  Saute the onion for 3 minutes over medium heat.
